Ktm could have payed him 15 million this year and it still wouldve been a bargain. About the closest that there is to a sure thing, Even longtime ktm haters like myself have to recognize. While that number i spit out is ridiculous, They definitely needed to get a title here to have truly arrived. And every penny they spend on Dungey is gonna come back ten fold long term.

when in doubt, pin it out

Regardless of how easy it was for Dungey to win this year, KTM have arrived and there can no longer be any doubt that KTM has a good bike, good team and the ability to win championships.

In KTM's case, what wins on Sunday will sell on Monday.

lol at previous post, before you jump on me, your races are on Sunday in NZ.

So true, so true. In fact, KTM is probably holding Dungey's bonuses and forfeiting the title as we speak. How can a champuonship have any value if RV was on the sidelines and Stewart corkscrewed himself into oblivion? Indeed, the value of Dungey's performances in 2012 is significantly reduced when considering the theoretical implications of a series that has not yet transpired.

derp derp derp..IDGAF what you Dungey swayers have to say...the dude had NO competition this year cause everyone was hurt..yeah..you gotta be IN IT TO WIN IT AND HE WAS..but when everyone else is IN IT he isn't dominating like he usually does.


Mark my word, he won't win any titles next year as long as one of the other dudes stays healthy the whole time.

P.S Barcia is as fast, if not faster than him and Stanton is 100% right.

Bam bam be buckin' next year and RD5 can't cry about him 'disrepecting him'

So what you're saying is, everybody else is faster until they hurt themselves going faster?

I gotta say Hando I'm a little surprised at your hard on against Dungey. We could chase the argument about riders being out of a series and making it easy till the end of time. Every champion has benefited from injuries and/or dnf's, or team instructions for that matter. How can you deny that Dungey has been in every series he has competed in since he turned pro? And he probably has more starts than anyone else during that period, which has obviously paid off in terms of titles.

easy.... every time he had competitors when he moved up to big bikes, he didn't win any titles. yes, that was only one time..but everytime he has won, he had no one in his league the whole season.

look, he deserves the titles he got..its not like he cheated to get them. you guys act like im claiming he did something to injure his competitors..clearly, that isnt the case.

enjoy it while you can guys, he'll be a 4th place guy next year, 5th if Trey/JS7 stays healthy.

When you factor in that RV2,CR22,JS7, Canard not to mention Barcia and Wilson moving up...yeah..things aren't looking good for the Dunge'

It's really hard to bet against RV's speed. He's on another level.......

13 pts. behind when he broke his collarbone 2012 Supercross, missed what 5 or 6 races & lost championship by 66 (add to that being that he switched to a totally new brand/bike that was still being worked out)
Tied for series lead when gas incident happend at Freestone & 7 pts. behind when the Southwick incident happend 2011 MX, lost series by 12
14 pts. behind when the broken chain happend 2011 SX, lost by 10

Before I would say those other guys would give him fits, I would say they are bad luck charms or somethin'... Dude has been the most consistent, injury free rider period over the last three seasons and the smartest investment period just with alot of bad luck at the worst times.. The new guys coming up will be in the mix and make it tougher on everyone but why people single out Dungey and don't give credit where credit is due is beyond ridiculous. I personally think Dungey has a next level to him which we have not seen yet that will more than likely come with the aggressiveness that has been lacking so far that lots of others including DeCoster have talked about, he has been showing small signs of it and when he finds it or at least lets it loose he will either have many more championships in his hands, or follow suit as the other guys with the crashes and injuries

Hando, i thought you had better reading comprehension than this. What i took from the original post was that it was more about how KTM has arrived and claiming their 1st premier class title is going to pay off tenfold, it was not really about Dungey, it just so happens he was the rider that did it.

Try reading it again, slowly, or do i need to break out the crayons and spell it out for you?

Not once have I ever seen the names of inured riders out for the season next to the name of the series champion in the record book.

Not gonna lie I'm pretty damn impressed with Dungey this year. Dude came back from a broken collarbone and killed it in the outdoors. I honestly thought he was going to be off pace for outdoors after watching him at seattle supercross, but he came back and ran strong. Seems like outdoors is over after watching that race.

Props to Josh Grant on the podium at Steel City too. Good to see.

he got quite close until his Suzuki did not want to cooperate.

You agree though RV's SX season was just as "easy" as Dungey outdoor title right? I don't deny RV has a little more in the tank at SX but Barcia won't come anywhere close to Dungey when the final points are tallied

9/2/2012 5:51 AM

Dungey is the man imo. I still don't feel he gets the credit he deserves in my opinion. His wins record from 2009 is unbelievable!

They put on a series and one guy, RD5, won it. Period. The only 450 national series he's lost since turning pro was essentially due to bike problems. He's proven himself to say the least.

|

9/2/2012 6:57 AM

RD5 is this generations Jeff Stanton. He's always fast and always in contention to win races and championships. He's not a flashy or outspoken showman but rather a journeyman who laces up his boots and quietly works hard at what he's paid to do. He's every companies dream employee and because of that he'll most likely never get the recognition from the masses that he deserves.
